Introducing: Daniel Piker

Legendary Car Canvases was created to bring you images by the world's best photographers of legendary cars — images at an approachable price that you’ll be proud to hang on your wall. Cheaper and more robust than framed prints, all images are printed on the highest quality handmade canvases using eco-friendly, latex-free inks. 

The immensely talented Daniel Piker (www.pikerphoto.comIG: @pikerphoto) is a Seattle, Washington, based photographer. An avid car enthusiast, mechanic, and stage rally co-driver, he loves all things automotive.

Daniel first picked up a DSLR during the Winter of 2015 and growing up in the Pacific Northwest, he developed a strong passion for the natural beauty of the area. He started off shooting landscapes and portraits, but it wasn’t long before he dipped his toes into the automotive world, combining both of his passions. You'll recognize Daniel's work from publications like Petrolicious, Super Street, 000 Magazine, Type 7, Stanceworks, and Bring a Trailer. Here's a little more about Daniel's car experience in his own words:

What’s your favorite car?

That's a hard one... if I could only pick one, I'm going to cheat here and say aircooled Porsches. They just have so much character compared to anything else, which makes them awesome subjects to photograph!

What’s your most treasured car experience?

As a co-driver in stage rally, it would have to be getting 3rd overall at Tour De Forest rally in 2018. It was one of the craziest rides we've had, especially since it was our rookie season. Oh and having to be bump started over the start line that same rally was quite the adventure too!

What’s your favorite shoot you’ve done?

It's not car related, but it was a photoshoot of a local painter in a coffee shop! My favorite part of photography is being able to document an experience, especially if it's of another artist!

What’s your favorite car photography experience?

This is another hard one... probably being able to photograph a Porsche 912 down in Palm Springs among all the modern artistic architecture! The contrast between the car and the buildings was such a fun challenge, I mean how can you get a better car/location combo!?

The Most Unique Ferrari F40

After close to 10 years of unsuccessful attempts, Amir stumbled across a classified ad for a 1992 Ferrari F40 at a ridiculously low price. Surely, there had to be a catch, but that wasn’t enough to turn him away from giving the guy a call. At this point, Amir knew he couldn’t afford the car, even if it was listed at a “steal” price. So what did Amir do? He went out on a limb and took a gamble on the car by pulling out a loan equivalent to purchasing a house. After the car arrived in Amir’s possession, the journey to build it into a hillclimb special began.

It’s remarkable then that this car exists and even more remarkable that these photos could be taken in what is normally an extremely busy and trafficked street in San Francisco. What makes this car photography incredible is that cars of this value and significance are almost never driven on the street, let alone in the city, and an empty San Francisco could only happen during a once-in-a-lifetime event like COVID-19.

To be in a position to purchase your dream car is a monumental feat. It will take tremendous  discipline, personal growth and an affinity for discomfort. And beneath that, it will take a deep connection to our purpose and why that purpose is important to us. With that in mind, Legendary Car Canvases is thrilled to announce our Inspiration Series, inspired by you! When you’re burning the midnight oil, working on your hustle instead of in the club or waking up at 5AM every morning to better yourself, you need a constant reminder of what you’re working for.
